Jack Black Travel Essentials Review

Hey Beauties!

Its coming up on that time of year when we all hopefully go on a little get away during the summer, I hope everyone is going somewhere nice and if not i hope youre enjoying the sun that we have just now.

The Jack Black Travel Essentials* set is the perfect thing for those of you that are on the go a lot its perfect for taking with you if you are on business or if you’re on holiday, best part is these are actually quite large tubes they should last multiple uses.

Jack Black Travel Essentials Review

This set comes with 4 fantastic travel size products: Double-Header Shampoo and Conditioner, Body-Building Hair Gel, Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20

Jack Black Travel Essentials

Firstly we have the Double Header Shampoo and Conditioner is an all-in-one shampoo and conditioner that works to gently cleanse and detangle the hair whilst hydrating and treating a dandruff-prone scalp. Fortified with a PureScience® formula, the creamy, sulphate-free blend combines creatine with coconut oil and mineral-packed organic kelp to nourish, thicken and strengthen strands. Usually i’m quite wary of products that say 2-in-1 because i find they dont always perform as good as they say they do, I was pretty surprised how well this actually worked a lot of the time if i dont use a conditioner or a mask my hair can feel dry and tangled but with this my hair felt really soft i think that might have to do with the Coconut Oil that’s in it.

Then we have the Body-Building Hair Gel which i personally wasn’t a great fan off as it was such a firm hold, i tried blowdrying it into my hair and also using it when my hair was dry but just felt it wasn’t for me but that doesn’t say its a bad product it might be fantastic and a great product for one of you out there. The Body Building Hair Gel is a lightweight styling gel that delivers long-lasting hold with conditioning properties. With a new and improved formula, the non-sticky product combines organic basil leaf, organic kelp and ginger root to add body and fullness whilst nourishing and adding shine. Drying instantly on the hair, the gel will hold your style in place without weighing hair down or leaving unsightly flakes and build-up.

 I really like the Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser it felt like it was actually giving my face a really good cleanse also the scent of the product was really nice as well. I found my skin seemed to look better when this was added into my routine i think mostly because it was cleansing so well that my other products could penetrate the skin better to give better results. Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser is 2 in 1 liquid cleanser and toner to remove excess oil, dirt and impurities to leave you with a clear and smooth complexion. Formulated with the PureScience® innovation, it works gently to hydrate and refresh skin and witch hazel and organic chamomile are contained to soothe and reduce redness.

Lastly we have the Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 which is the product i kind of used the least because i have a moisturizer i really like already so i asked one of my friends to use this product and he said that it left his skin feeling really hydrated (he has dry skin) and it didnt sit on his skin like a lot of other moisturisers for men, it was absorbed really easily, he also liked the fact there was an SPF in it as well for a bit of sun protection. Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 is a hydrating cream to improve the skin’s appearance. Blue algae extract provides vitamin E to reduce inflammation and leave skin supple and mineral-rich sea parsley to reduce irritation. Its advanced moisturising complex delivers sun protection to shield skin from exposure to harmful UVA and UVB rays and contains organic antioxidants to promote collagen formation.

Jack Black Travel Essentials

For only £21 on Mankind.co.uk, i think this is a fantastic set and great value for taking on holiday because you can only carry a certain amount of liquids so this would be great to take with you. Its good as well if you dont want to commit to buying full size products you can bascially try the smaller versions before the more expensive ones.

  • When people ask "what do I use for darkness under the eyes" it's can be a complicated issue because it's not always pigmentation.

When dealing with dark circles under the eyes it can be due to the pigmentation in the skin so you will need to look for tyrosinase inhibitors like kojic acid as well as azelaic acid which can brighten an area over time 
Darkness under the eyes can also comes from things like thin skin and lack of fat pads under the eyes, you can essentially see the darkness under the skin through the skin because the orbital area is hollow 
Shadows can be casted by either having too much or not enough fat pad.

This can corrected by using products that thicken the epidermis, glycolic acid is fantastic for this has it thickens the skin over time, there are more permanent fixes as well uses a the use of fillers.

Fillers are injected into the undereye area to simulate the presence of fat pads taking away the darkness. .

  • *GIFTED I love the formula of this sunscreen but I'm not too keen on how it's marketed as if somehow it's better than others because it's "clean". The whole "clean" skincare movement is something I dont agree with because it's not based on anything scientific and if I'm honest i feel like it uses people's fears against them in the sense that people have such an unfounded fear of toxic, dangerous ingredients in skincare.

I just really don't like when brands claim their products are clean as if other products are dirty and dangerous which just isn't the case.

This is an inorganic filter (physical) SPF 30 which uses 22% Zinc Oxide which is broad spectrum it's not more effective or cleaner than organic (chemical) filters.

Besides the way it's marketed I really like the actual product, the stuff inside. It goes on really well and spreads easily despite being silicone free. It also layers well under makeup without changing the colour of your makeup.

I haven't tried on deeper skin tones but I doubt this sunscreen will be suitable because of the high zinc oxide content which tends to look really ashy on deeper skin tones.

I just want to say as a last thing don't be afraid of organic (chemical) sunscreens, they aren't dangerous they aren't bad for you and just because something is inorganic (physical) it doesn't mean it's somehow cleaner. 
Sunscreens are put through an incredible amount of testing to make sure they are safe, effective and fit for purpose. Don't fall for the fearmongering.

  • Theres an idea floating around that the skin needs to breathe but  this is just a myth.

The skin doesn't breathe and you don't need to let it breathe. Your pores have absolutely nothing to do with breathing and covering them won't suffocate your skin.

The idea that ingredients can suffocate the skin is just very old school thing the one most talked about is silicone which contrary to popular belief is actually really good for the skin.

Silicone gives your skin that really nice slip when applying products not to mention it also protects your skin by forming s barrier again the outside world, but thing can still get through as the shape of silicone is like a big hollow circle with branches so it doesn't suffocate your skin.

If you see people saying you need to let your skin breathe you can now tell them the truth!

  • I see this all the time people talking about shrinking their pores by using hot water and closing them with cold water but this simply isn’t possible 
There are no muscles connected to the pore so there is no way for them to open and close. The size of pores is largely down to genetics and there is not much you can do to change that.

He only muscle that can be found is the arrector pili which causes goose bumps by pulling the hairs up on your skin but it doesn’t have anything to do with your pores and tightening them. 
When you see an enlarged pore it doesn’t mean it’s open it most likely means it’s congested with dead skin cells and hardened sebum however you can fix this by using something like salicylic acid which can penetrate the pore lining and flush everything out making the pore appear smaller.

While there are products out there that can blur and temporarily tighten the skin there is nothing permanent out there that can change the size of pores.
